Let your light shine
Mother’s Day can be extremely difficult for a woman who has been waiting for that precious gift that gives this very holiday its significance. In all actuality, this holiday can be a brutal and devastating reminder of what we don’t yet have. Or what we may have lost..
Every year, I look forward to celebrating my beautiful mother, my aunts, my friends, my cousins and my grandmothers who have all brought so much life and love into the world!
But even more importantly, I share my heart and recognize us, the mothers in the wait.
There are so many fun and inspirational Gift Guides floating around the virtual world for mothers on Mother’s Day! They are so very helpful, in fact!
However, I am going to flip the script to YOU special lady, and encourage everyone to remember the ones who also, need to be honored this holiday and to be loved on a little extra, too.
I get it! What can you give a woman who has been through so much without overwhelming her or misunderstanding her?! It can be difficult trying to meet someone in a place of brokenness and feel as though what you have to offer is not enough! Unfortunately, nothing you can do will take away the pain one feels when going through infertility or loss. BUT I can promise you that your effort and thoughtfulness means the absolute WORLD to a mommy in the wait!! You can make the worst day a source of HOPE for her!!
So in honor of my TTC Sisters, I put together some gift ideas for anyone who wants to send some love to a lady in the waiting! I made sure to include items that are dear to my heart, faith based and #ttc trending!
I hope that this Gift Guide gives so much love, hope, inspiration and encouragement to who ever is in need!
1) TTC Merchandise!!
I linked some personal favorites from Grace While We Wait, The Brave Mama Co, and Charming Charlie!! Any gift that speaks encouragement, faith & pineapples will have a special touch for a TTC sister!
2) Adoption Subscription Box!!
I thought this idea was SO cool and sweet for a momma who is walking through the adoption process!
3) TTC Necessities!!
I feel like this would be such a great gift of convenience! Especially, for a hubby to get his wife! It's a gift of support and teamwork! A gift that shows we are in this together, and can take the feeling of responsibility off of our shoulders!
I included In Due Time Devotional by Caroline Harries, Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagerty, the Passion Translation of the New Testament, and a prayer journal! Such encouraging resources for a momma in the wait!
5)Moms in the Making Conference Ticket!!
YOU. NEED. TO. GO.
This can be a life changing and pivotal moment in any woman's life!! She is welcome to bring her female support system if she does not want to attend alone! FAITH BUILDING!
6)Shopping Spree, Coffee, Jewelry, Card, etc.!!!
Just like every other momma on Mother's Day, we want to feel pampered, special and remembered, too!! Your gift does not have to be infertility related. Anything from your heart is all we desire and truly desire!!
